experience that fits your family best, these gifts can create lasting memories for everyone. Step 4: Add a Thoughtful Touch After you’ve purchased all of your gifts, take the time to add something personal to each of them. A handwritten letter, old photos, or other mementos could end up having just as much of an impact as the gift itself. It will also let the child know that you’re thinking of them, which is especially meaningful when you can’t spend the holidays together. Step 5: Have Fun Buying gifts for your grandkids should be a joyful experience and a way to express your love. That’s what matters most of all.

‘Tis the season to flock to the stores to find the hottest deals on the coolest products just in time for the holidays. For older adults, however, braving a crowded parking lot and long lines can be a painful, difficult ordeal. Luckily, you don’t have to

participate in this “rat” race in order to give your grandchildren presents they’ll cherish for years to come. Follow these steps to generate ideas for affordable, unforgettable gifts.

They can tell you what each child is interested in, as well as list any gifts to avoid. Parents’ insights will prove invaluable when it comes time to make a decision, especially because different parents have varying ideas of what’s acceptable. Step 3: Give an Experience Consider giving an experience-based gift rather than a toy or material object. Maybe you want to give all of the children in one family tickets for a getaway. Perhaps you want to accompany them to a museum or sporting event. No matter the

Step 1: Make a Budget Regardless of how much you’ve saved for retirement, you need to consider the finances. The best way to establish a budget is to set aside a holiday fund including the total amount of money you’re comfortable spending. Divide that total by the number of grandchildren you have, and you’ll now know approximately how much you can spend on each gift.

But I consulted with Dr. Alff and he felt that he could help me avoid surgery. I started treatment and I cannot believe how I feel now — within just a few weeks! Besides his treatments, he has taught me about better eating with non-inflammatory foods. Along with the chiropractic adjustments, I believe that this has been one of the keys to my feeling better! I now have more energy, but the best thing is that my thigh does not ache all day long! My pain level was a 10 when I started treatment, and now it is a 1!

I consulted with Dr. Alff, D.C. of the Ventura Spine and Nerve Center because I saw firsthand how he helped my friend heal her low back condition. I had been suffering with hip and thigh pain for 10 years! The pain would start at my hip and then radiate down my thigh. I tried taking arthritis medication, but that was not doing anything! I was at the point where I was considering surgery because my hip was so sore and very achy — all the time! I knew I couldn’t live like this for the rest of my life.

Dr. Alff, you are an educated, passionate healer, and I thank you! Sincerely, –Dawn Hildebrand , Ventura 2
